Glowing green craft with flashing lights instantly disappeared

I was walking across an empty parking lot at Utah Valley University. I was looking West, towards the lake. I do this every time I am in the parking lot because I have seen strange objects over it before. What I first thought was an airplane caught my attention, but it seemed to be a little lower than what I normally see planes fly over the lake. As my gaze lingered, I noticed it the blinking light pattern was strange and that the craft was faintly glowing green.

The blinking lights went from left to right in quick succession, flashing red, white, red with a slight pause when nothing was flashing and only the faint green glow, which was shaped in a slight arc, was visible.

It was heading North for at least 20-30 seconds, but it lowered a bit in the sky and switched directions so it was moving north east. When it changed directions another light was added to the pattern. It went white, red, white, red.

Then it switched directions again and headed straight north for maybe 10 seconds and completely and instantly disappeared. There were no clouds in that part of the sky and no boundaries that could hide it from me. It didn't 'quickly' disappear or 'fade', it was there one second and completely gone the next.
